University Interactive Tour Voted Best UX

Noble Studios took home Best in Show, two Gold and two Silver awards from the 2013 W3 Awards judged by the International Academy of the Visual Arts. The digital agency received the Best in Show honor in the user experience (UX) category for the University of Nevada, Reno (UNR) Interactive Tour. Noble Studios is the first agency in Nevada to be awarded Best in Show from the W3 Awards.

Receiving more than 4,000 entries, the W3 Awards honors outstanding websites, Web marketing, Web video and mobile apps created by some of the best interactive agencies, designers and creators worldwide. The Best in Show winners represent the highest mark of distinction and only the top 1% of work entered. Less than 10% of all entries are selected as Gold winners.

“It’s pretty incredible to walk into our office every day and see the amount of hard work, collaboration and precision our team applies to every project,” said Jarrod Lopiccolo, CEO and founding partner of Noble Studios. “It’s this level of passion and dedication that inspires great work.”

Noble Studios also placed in the copywriting and website categories for the team’s work on Autodesk’s Line/Shape/Space, Ford Fusion, and Pahrump, Nevada websites.

“We were amazed at the caliber and quality of work we received this year. Our winners continue to push the envelope of Internet creativity and Web design, and it is gratifying to see such great work from the smallest agencies to the biggest firms” said Linda Day, the director of the IAVA. “On behalf of the over 500 members of The International Academy of the Visual Arts, we are honored to recognize our winners as they continue to set a high standard of excellence for Web development.”

The recognition from the W3 Awards is one of many in an award-winning year for Noble Studios. Earlier this year, the agency made the Inc. 500|5000 list of fastest-growing private companies in America, Jarrod Lopiccolo was named Technologist of the Year by the Nevada Center for Entrepreneurship and Technology, and Season Lopiccolo was recognized as Entrepreneur of the Year by the Reno Gazette Journal.
